Caring for God’s Acre (UK)

Caring for God’s Acre is a charity that operates nationally throughout the UK. Its mission is to provide support to groups and individuals who are interested in exploring, maintaining, and appreciating burial grounds of all types. This includes activities such as archival research, documenting memorials, and offering advice on caring for the wildlife that inhabits these distinctive areas. The organisation undertakes a range of activities such as running ambitious projects, hosting public webinars, undertaking site visits, and co-ordinating the popular ‘Love your Burial Ground Week’ in June. The website is a remarkably rich  depository of information, including support for site interpretation.


The Cemetery Research Group runs two events a year: in May and in November. Follow the links and send in an abstract
